“Great place to see live music!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We enjoyed our stop here. It was early evening but the music was playing and place was starting to fill up. A few drinks with the windows opened wide and it felt like we were sitting out enjoying the late afternoon. I'd go back!

“average pub grub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Very popular spot so go early if you are doing the happy hour run. Food is your average pub grub. Good music but little seating and it gets crowded quick.

“Great entertainment.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We had a good pub supper and great entertainment at this friendly pub on Water Street. It is easy to find and apparently has entertainment every night. We tried the starter platter for two, which had many tasty bits and bites, although perhaps a bit low on the veggies for some tastes!!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Live music every nite... Wednesday nite is probably the best.... Younger crowd and the boys from The Navigators play every Wednesday.... Pub grub is not bad either...
